World Diabetes Day 2012.

I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes 59 years after insulin was discovered.  And here we are just about 31 years later and although the tools to oversee one’s glucose levels have improved significantly, we still rely on insulin to live.  Without insulin, the rest is useless.

So on this day, World Diabetes Day 2012, I say thank you to Banting and Best.  I owe you both my life, literally.  Oh and happy birthday Sir Frederick Grant Banting!   :)

I’m going to try and pass by the Empire State Building tonight to see it lit up in blue.  Let’s hope it’s not a big fat fail like last year!
